What is Web Hosting?

But we do provide you with all the tools for free, so you can create any website that you like; you are only limited by your imganation.
What is Anti-DDoS, DDoS Protected or DDoS Protection?
The chances of being targeted by a DDoS attack are high, and attempts are numerous.
A DDoS attack aims to render a server, service or an infrastructure unavailable by overloading the server’s bandwidth or monopolising its resources to the point of depletion.
During a DDoS attack, a multitude of requests are sent simultaneously from multiple points across the internet. The intensity of this “crossfire” renders the service unstable, or even worse, unavailable.
What we offer to protect your services
To protect your servers and services from attacks, we make use of the OVH network which offers a mitigation solution based on VAC technology – an exclusive combination of techniques to:
Analyzing all packets at high speed in real time
Vacuum your server’s incoming traffic
Mitigate, i.e. singling out all the illegitimate IP packets, while allowing legitimate ones to pass through
Our DDoS protection covers all types of attacks from L3 – L7.
“It’s not a question of knowing if you need anti-DDoS protection but rather when you will first be the victim of an attack. OVH is committed to protecting your project 24/7 against any DDoS attack, regardless of duration or size.” – Octave Klaba, OVH CTO.
These are some of the reasons why we use the power of the OVH network to host our infrastructure.
